Melrose Newborn Pictures :: Mr. L

Newborn Pictures for Mr. L With A Fun Surprise :: Melrose MA Photographer

For any session I send parents a styling questionnaire. This questionnaire includes everything from who will be present during the session, to specific props and poses. This helps me to get a good idea of what to expect during the session. Plus I can pull any props or accessories that I think the parents would like to include in their session. One specific thing I always ask for newborn photos is if there is a specific color scheme/theme for the nursery. For one thing, some parents hang newborn artwork in their child’s nursery so I like to give them options that will work in that room. But also it’s a good way to gauge what styles parents like. For Mr. L’s nursery he has a specific theme and it made for such a fun twist to these Melrose newborn pictures. That theme? Dinosaurs!

I had photographed big sister for her Cake Smash which is still a favorite of mine!

Digital Composites vs Props for Newborn Photos

For this session I incorporated Mr. L’s nursery theme of dinosaurs in a digital composite portrait. What’s a digital composite you ask? It is a background or image that I am able to digitally add your baby to in post production. I take a photo of your little one without too many extra accessories and from an angle that makes sense for the chosen composite. Then, I am able to add it into the digital artwork to give you a beautiful portrait. I actually did a number of these when Covid was first happening using photos taken at home by parents.

This is such a fun way to add a fun and colorful addition to your newborn pictures. Especially if you’re looking for a theme that is harder to accomplish using props and accessories. If this is something you’re interested in for your newborn portrait session, please let me know! It added an adorable touch to these Melrose newborn pictures and can to your session, too.
